As Good As Gold

So when it comes to gold or silver, most likely I’ll pick the gold option.  Not that I don’t like silver or anything, but there is just something about gold that appeals to me more.  Maybe it’s because as a kid I could only wear 10 karat gold earrings because of allergies, or maybe it’s because gold has more colour, I dunno, I just like gold.  A lot.

With summer coming up there is nothing like gold jewelry to accessorize with a perfect tan.  It not only pops out more, but it could also make you look darker.  Unfortunately I don’t really own any real gold unless you count some earrings from when I was nine or vintage jewellery passed down to me.  That’s okay though, I like costume jewellery better and it’s way more fun to wear (and not to mention cheaper!).

Bracelet and charm by Juicy Couture, ribbon charm necklace by Forever 21, and bracelets by H&M

I have picked up some really cute gold jewellery throughout the years.  One of my favourites is this oversized bow ring I got at H&M in Las Vegas in February.  It’s actually so cute and the best part?  I think I paid like $5 for it.

Rings by H&M

With oversized rings like these you want to make sure not to overdo it with other jewellery.  If I do a big ring I will pair it with a necklace or earrings.  Very rarely will I do a bracelet with it.  And if I do it will be a lone bangle pushed up on my arm.  I wore the bow ring a few days ago and that coupled with the Spa Ritual Knowledge is Power nail polish, the look totally reminded me of Hello Kitty.  It was just a cute, girly look.  I mean, who says that you can’t pair your rings with your nail polish?

Rosebud earrings by Forever 21, hoops by H&M

Like I mentioned earlier, I used to be allergic to everything but 10 karat gold earrings, and although that’s not the case anymore, I can only wear costume earrings for so long before they start to hurt my ears.  Whether I’m doing hoops or studs (like these cute rosebud ones from Forever 21) I can only pull them off for a day, which is fine because I always get something caught in the hoops and those studs are not comfortable to lie down with or talk on the phone with, although very cute.

Bracelet by Joe Fresh, chain necklace by Forever 21, and statement necklace by H&M

As for necklaces, all the gold ones I have are huge statement ones.  I recently picked up an oversized chain necklace from Forever 21 that I have been looking for forever.  I was so excited to see it in store last weekend that I had to pick it up right away.  You could pair that with anything from a button down shirt to a cute dress, it’s versatile to pull off in really any look.

As you can see I really do love gold jewellery.  And yes, I do own some silver as well, but I personally find gold more fun to wear.  What’s your jewellery collection like?  Are you a gold fan, or do you prefer silver?
